Who are the best touts?

I got into an argument with a longtime friend yesterday at the casino because he was paying a tout service. To my surprise, three other guys at our poker table including the dealer said they paid touts some weeks or pay a yearly fee. Are they worth it? The only one that would say who his tout was, was my friend as he was complaining about losing the Saint -9.

Re: Who are the best touts?

Lol at Touts. Anyone who trusts a person that tries unbelievably hard to prove themselves by flashing money, etc.. Then also demands respect and claims to be a professional individual? Yeah, you deserve to get scammed because of your naivety and hopefully it teaches you a lesson. Yeah sure, some punk 22 year old with a flat brim and gold chain is consistently sharper than Vegas. Haha okay. Okay.

I honestly can't believe the stupidity in this world.

If an individual was really crushing at the %'s that most touts do, the LAST thing on earth they would do is tell others about it, or try and "sell" that service for a nominal subscription fee.

Triggered. / end rant.

What does the style of ones hat have to do with their ability to pick winners?

Re: Who are the best touts?

it's a business model that makes 0 sense. if those picks were actually +ev, then they would be worth far more than what you can sell them for.

Nimadamus provides huge upside when his system is spitting out A-1 bullets. Unfortunately he is not currently handicapping. www.nimajooyandeh.com

Perhaps the hat comment was overkill. However, lifestyle choices are an indicator of work ethic and professionalism. To profitably beat sports you have to be analytical, extremely diligent about the work you put in, all while removing emotion from the equation.

Someone who brags about wins and flashes success as a way to gloat is doing it merely to entice vulnerable people. "Hey I can be like this guy too if I pay for his picks!!"

I always thought this stuff too, I couldn’t believe all these guys paid for them and swore by them. I could see paying for data services maybe but paying a tout kimd of seems like it takes the fun out of it.

99% of them are as good as you and I. They are basically marketers/sales people who knows how to spin ****.

There are however, some decent ones. In my opinion, bettingresource is probably one of the best. I have been using them only for less than a year but I like their discipline and style. Hopefully they don't crash and burn like most of them do. Even if their picks crash and burn, I will continue to use their money management strategy and spreadsheet with my own picks...it is probably one of the best strategy I have seen if you are looking to grow a bankroll rapidly. It looks simple and wtf and maybe even seem aggressive for some considering the max bet is 3% of bankroll but when its put to use with your own picks it helps seal many leaks.

What I learned is that I have decent at picking games myself but i always lost sooner or later because I suck when it comes to money management. Using this money management keeps me in the game and in profit.

Holy ***, i have been in this guy's uber when I visited San Fran. He has creep vibe return all over him. I was with my wife and she was wearing someone promiscuous outfit for the night out and this f'er kept eyeballing her in the mirror. My wife actually felt weird and told me about it after. Left 1 star review, zero tip.

Re: Who are the best touts?

sidenote: anyone else watch Barstool Sports Advisors? they have Stu Feiner on there and it's basically a semi-casual pick-em type program but they really play up the whole stereotype of those old tout picker infomercial type shows. Absolutely entertaining and hilarious to watch (if you like that sort of shtick.)

oh and actual touts....no no no
